"Executory Contracts" en Transacciones Inmobiliarias bajo las Leyes de Texas

Al comprar bienes raíces con financiamiento, el Comprador puede acudir a un tercero o al Vendedor. En muchas transacciones inmobiliarias, la propiedad y posesión de un bien son transmitidos del Vendedor al Comprador en la fecha de Cierre; pero, en ciertas transacciones, especialmente cuando el financiamiento corre a cargo del Vendedor, la posesión se le otorga al Comprador, pero la propiedad la retiene el Vendedor hasta una fecha en el futuro, en muchos casos, hasta que el Vendedor ha recibido el pago completo del Comprador. Este tipo de transacciones se conocen comúnmente en Ingles como contratos "executory contracts" o "rent-to-own".

Executory Contracts in Real Estate Transactions under Texas Law

When purchasing real property in which financing is involved, the Buyer may seek financing from a third party or from the Seller. In many real estate transactions, title and possession of the real property are delivered from Seller to Buyer by a Closing date. However, n certain transactions, especially when financing is provided by the Seller, possession is delivered to Buyer but title is held by Seller until a date in the future. In many cases, the transfer of title is withheld until Seller has received the payment price in full from Buyer. These type of real estate transactions are commonly known as executory or "rent-to-own" contracts.

Criminal convictions and immigration status

Facing criminal charges can be a serious matter for anyone. Defendants who are not U.S. citizens may also face immigration concerns in addition to other consequences in the event of a conviction.

Generally, an immigrant may face deportation and bans on future entry into the country based on convictions for so-called crimes involving moral turpitude. While the statute itself does not define a CIMT, rulings by federal courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals have clarified this issue in some respects, leaving others open to argument.

The deadly effects of tailgating

Common knowledge, as well as traffic signs, remind drivers not to speed and allow them to be aware of what the limit for speed is on any road. However, the dangers inherent in tailgating may not be obvious enough, and the signs advising against it are not so evident.

Speeding was an apparent cause of a fatal car accident in Texas this summer that killed four people. According to U.S. News and World Report, the Texas Department of Public Safety indicates that the accident involved speeding, and investigation by authorities was to take place to determine if drugs or alcohol contributed as well.

What constitutes animal cruelty in Texas?

Animal cruelty is a serious criminal offense. The state of Texas has strong laws on the books about what constitutes animal cruelty. 

Most people are familiar with the basic definition, which can include animal fighting and physical abuse. However, there are other forms of cruelty that could land a person in jail. Whether a person owns pets or livestock, all animals have rights to a basic level of quality of life. 

4 most common types of workplace injuries

When a person suffers an injury as a result of another’s negligence, immediate action is necessary. The state of Texas has a statute of limitation of two years on personal injury cases.

While personal injury cases can come about as a result of car accidents and dog bites, many occur every year at people’s places of work. People should be mindful to avoid the following workplace accidents, but they need to consult with an attorney should an incident happen.

Robbery or burglary charges are different but serious

Most people use the words theft, burglary and robbery interchangeably. In the legal world, theft encompasses many crimes, such as shoplifting, burglary, robbery and petty theft. Although the distinctions are often small, the consequences for one of these crimes can be life-changing, even for first offenders. 

In Texas Penal Code § 29.02, robbery is when a person commits theft and causes bodily injury to another or threatens to use force to deprive someone of the property. Generally, robbery is a felony of the second degree, although some circumstances can make it a felony of the first degree. Injuring a senior citizen or a disabled person makes the crime aggravated robbery.
